I'm a firm believer in taking delivery of metals... however, I don't believe in -- nor trust -- depository holdings of any metal at this point. What in the world does a person in this situation actually DO?
I am not having Brinks stop by the house to drop off a brick(s) of Au or Ag... I don't want to have the government lay claim to depository holdings in the future... So what do people with experience in this situation actually do?
I have considered shipping the metal to a private mint and having rounds made, but this is fraught with other issues.
In short, I know enough to protect myself in one way, but not enough to protect myself in other ways.
Any thoughts on the matter are welcome.
If you own your house, I'd say buy a safe. A big one that cannot be moved easily.
